Geotextiles

Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect or drain.

While a number of generic classes of geotextile are manufactured, by far the most popular geotextile is the needle punched style of product due to its versitility and overall performance.

Bidim is a continuous filament, non woven, needle punched, polyester geotextile designed to provide effective and economic solutions to a multitude of engineering applications.

Bidim is manufactured to the highest international standards and has ISO9001:2000 accreditation. Geofabrics Australasia is the only geotextile manufacturer in Australia, with plants in Albury and the Gold Coast providing the best customer service throughout the country.

Domestic Uses & Install Instructions

Typical Bidim applications.

Drainage - sub soil drainage systems  - used to remove water from road works, sports fields and behind retaining walls.The high porosity of the geotextile allows water flow while preventing fines migration.

Separation - construction of road and embankments over soft ground - ensures soft subgrade does not contaminate the fill material quality.

Protection - provides a cushioning layer for HDPE and GCL liners that may be subject to damage factors.
